Hearings Board Finds Problems with Kitsap County CAO By ChristopherDunagan
"Kitsap County commissioners have been ordered to revisit the county's Critical Areas Ordinance to address shortcomings in shoreline protection rules.

The board also said the county cannot exempt small, isolated wetlands from regulations, as the county had proposed."
